    New Manitoba Sport Hall of Fame Exhibit Features Winnipeg Toilers Basketball Memorabilia



    Reflections of the Great War: Manitoban Athletes-In-Arms
    The newest feature exhibit at the Manitoba Sport Hall of Fame is called Reflections of the Great War: Manitoban Athletes-In-Arms.  In celebration of the 100 years’ anniversary of the end of the First World War, the exhibit features Manitoba’s athletes and sports teams, or the battalions to which they belonged, during the war.


    The collection includes memorabilia form the Winnipeg Toilers Basketball Club who formed around the time of the Great War.  The new collection officially opened on May 1 and will be featured through to January 2019.

    Using information from the digitized First World War personnel records in concert with archival materials such as badges, medals, articles of clothing and uniforms, and sports equipment, the curators designed this exhibit to showcase the incredible efforts of our honoured members and other athletes in the early 20th century.
